This analysis is wrong. GDB will first of all look for frame annotation
data, i.e. .eh_frame or the corresponding .debug_frame. Only if it can't
find such annotation will it fall back to guessing from the function
itself. We default to building .eh_frame for all binaries, but I'm not
completely sure if GCC will create async unwind tables by default.
